Team Anna invites netas for Lokpal debate
Satirically calling it a "debate with no adjournments", Team Anna has invited leaders of all political parties at Jantar Mantar on December 11 to speak on the Lokpal Bill.
New Delhi: Team Anna today invited leaders of
all parties to Jantar Mantar on December 11, when Anna Hazare
plans to sit on a day-long fast, to put their views on Lokpal
Bill, a deviation from its stand on previous occasions when it
did not allow politicians to share its platform.
"December 11th, Jantar Mantar debate with no adjournments
on Lokpal. Come, listen, ask questions and clarify doubts.
Political representatives are invited to speak," activist
Kiran Bedi tweeted.
A Team Anna spokesperson said formal invites are being
sent to parties.
Hazare will be sitting on a day-long protest demanding a
strong Lokpal Bill.
In the past, Hazare had said that he will not invite any
politicians to his fast. He had said they can come and sit
with protesters but cannot share dais or make speeches.
